Introduction Letter from Principal Kobelt


Dear G.W. Carver Parents and Community,

I am honored to be the new Principal of George Washington Carver School of the Arts and Sciences.  The G.W. Carver community is not only the first Waldorf Public Charter in the Nation, it carries the name of a scientist, inventor, supporter of the arts, and educator.  As a supporter and occasional curator of the arts, I visited G.W. Carver in 2013/2014 and instantly fell in love.  So I look forward to working with our parents, staff and students to enhance student engagement, breathe life back into our gardens, increase the awareness and enrollment of our campus and provide the academic and extra-curricular opportunities our students require to graduate college and career ready. 

My career in education began over 25 years ago at the University of California at Davis as a pre-veterinarian student.   However, at UCD I discovered my knack for working with students and explored my love of the arts.  As an administrator and teacher, I have an extensive diverse background in secondary education where I have worked in Southern and Northern California, and most recently abroad with multi-lingual students. I am excited to share my expertise and experience to benefit the G.W. Carver community in accomplishing our goals.

Although these unprecedented times have been difficult for our community, collaboratively we will encourage and guide our students, families, and staff through what we hope to soon be the tail end of a pandemic, and a healing process from the racial and gender tensions we have experienced in our lives and through the media. As your Principal, my goal is to have a safe, positive, and supportive learning environment for all students.

G.W. Carver is a unique hidden jewel in Sacramento and I am excited to lead and serve this wonderful community. I am looking forward to getting to know my future graduates and parents.
